Abstract

This report provides a comparative analyses of the results from the international standard problem (ISP)-39 exercise promoted by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development - Committee on the Safety of Nuclear Installation (OECD-CSNI) in the frame of the Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) activities aimed at fostering international cooperation in reactor safety research and development. ISP-39 has been conceived to benchmark the predictive capabilities of computer codes used in the evaluation of fuel coolant interaction (FCI) and quenching phenomenologies of relevance in water cooled reactors severe accidents safety analysis. The ISP-39 reference case is FARO test L-14, a non-energetic FCI test performed under realistic melt composition and prototypical accident conditions in the FARO experimental installation which is operated at JRC Ispra (Italy).
